    Evolution Mail Client

    Hi People,

    I was trying to get an IMAP Password from Sky for the Evolution Mail Client but unfortunately Sky don't seem to be able to support Evolution. The guy in technical support did not even know what I was talking about - He had not heard of Ubuntu. He was going on about Jaguar & Tiger.

    Any ideas as to how this can be overcome...

    Regards

    St Nabi

    It should be the same password you use to log into your email account.

    And it doesnt matter which mail client you use, the settings would be the same regardless... So you might have to tell the guy on the fone your using a different one to make him happy.

    Hi there,

    It seems that Sky do not have the required support for Evolution. Nonetheless after trying various bits & pieces this is the message that I get:-

    Error while Fetching Mail.

    Unable to connect to POP server pop.tools.sky.com: No support for requested authentication mechanism.

    Looks like I will just have to use Windows for this...
